The adrenaline-ridden action movie based on real incidents brings to the screen the story of South Korean liberation movement against Japanese colonial rule.

Seoul, 1923. Set during the Japanese occupation of South Korea. Lee Jung-Chool was once a member of the Korean independence movement, but he now works as a police officer for Japan. He receives an order to take down the Righteous Brotherhood, a Korean independence group. In the guise of an art collector, Lee Jung-Chool introduces himself to art dealer Kim Woo-Jin, who is the regional leader of the Righteous Brotherhood. The resistance movement learns there are spies within their group. Meanwhile, members of the Righteous Brotherhood go to Shanghai to acquire explosive for an attack on the Japanese government in Korea.

"The Japanese colonial period was the most difficult time in Korean history. In contrast, today you can see how the world is moving towards the right wing, even Korea is having a hard time financially. I thought it would be important to show what happened then and how it relates to what’s happening today." (Kim Jee-woon)

In 2013, The Last Stand took him to Hollywood to work with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Forest Whitaker.
